  • Operation Christmas Child Of Northwest MI Bringing Smiles Overseas

"Operation Christmas Child" is officially underway. From small shoes, school supplies, personal items, and of course toys, the church is looking for anything that will fill a shoe box.

Klosterbuer and Hayenga have each met refugees that now live in Worthington who received an Operation Christmas Child box of gifts when they were children.

This week, they're collecting those boxes and several locations in the Tri-State will serve as drop-off sites.

Donors can drop off their boxes each day between noon and 3 p.m.at the back entrance to the church on Route 12.

On the other hand, Copeland said school supplies are especially important, as some of the children do not get to go to school unless they have them. "We believe that God knows the child you are packing for".

"It's kind of an excitement just anticipating who's going to get the box", Bare said.

"My goal would just be.I can't even tell you".

McGlone and friends shopped for a boy and girl age 2 to 4, along with two more boxes for a boy and girl age 5 to 9.

"This started as another way to get involved in something global".

"It can be war-related, natural disasters, poverty", said Florey. "I think our own kids, including my two-year-old, I can't wait to show him on the map where the box goes".

There are items they ask you not to put in shoe boxes. "And it's because of wonderful people in this community", said Pastor Jeremy Vines. Every shoebox needs a $9 donation to cover critical shipping and ministry costs.

The senior group of OWLS (Older, Wiser, Loving, Seniors) from Evangelical Baptist Church packed over 50 shoe boxes to be sent to children in Third-World countries.
